The Best Chicken Fried Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly as written and is was perfect. I noticed the only two people who have given this recipe 4 stars instead of 5, DIDN'T FOLLOW THE RECIPE. Maybe their cooking is only 4 stars but norah's is 5.

Calico Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Fantastic dish! The only change I made was to use equal amounts of zuccini. Other than that I did exactly as the recipe said. For those concerned about the prep time, practice. I had it done and ready for the oven in about the suggested time. That kinda suprised me looking at the number of ingredience.

Mom's Best Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
I've been doing this recipe for years, but I do have a suggestion especially for the person that gave it 4 stars. Dip the chop in flour, then the egg, then the crumbs. This works for almost all breading recipes.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
I wanted a chocolate cake for my buddy's birthday. He's a real chocolaholic. This one was perfect! I made it exactly as printed except I used another reviewers idea and used mini chips. They were evenly distributed through out the entire cake instead of ending up at the bottom like bigger chips can do. I used another persons icing made of 3 cups of coolwhip melted in the nuker with 8oz. of semi sweet bakers chocolate. It made a nice semi hard coating on the inside of the bundt cake which I filled with sliced strawberries. I used another recipe's idea and made a large flower on top of the cake with strawberry slices. It was a big hit, and he took a picture to send to his mom.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
Great!! Love them. Next time I might reduce the oregano. I think the Italian seasoning and seasoned bread crumbs are enough herbs, but I still loved them.

Mild Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
I have to give this 5 stars just because of the cheese sauce. After reading the other reviews, I add flavor by doubling the onion (saute it first). I added a couplt cloves of garlic. I also added chopped green chilies, and some salt. Yum!

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
This was perfect just as written. It made more than enough breading for two chops. I was wishing I had two more. Just a suggestion for those who have trouble with the crust falling off, Let the meat sit for five minutes after breading and before frying. That will make the crust stay on. Thanks for this one, Martha.

Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
Man that was GOOD! This is the best cobbler crust I've ever had. I did use two cans for fruit and added some ginger and cinnamon. I also sprinkled cinnamon and sugar very lightly on the crust just as I pulled it out of the oven. I can't wait to try this with a mixture of peaches and blue berries, or apples, or mixed berries, or etc. etc..

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
Just finished this great dish. Like other, I used 16oz sausage and two 14oz. cans of diced tomatoes. The pan was a little small for all the recipe called for so I cut to rice down to 3/4 cup and didn't need the broth. I did put a half cup of water in it near the end. I also reduced the pepper and cayenne. I covered it and cooked on the stove top. Last, I topped it off on the plate with some grated sharp cheddar. Dad said that made it perfect.

Beef and Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
I've made this twice and both times my picky father said it was the best stew he's ever had. That's something coming from a 96 year old that thinks no one can cook anything better than his mother. The only changes I made was to use a handful of little red potatoes instead of regular potatoes and fresh green beans instead of peas. I put the green beans in at the same time as the potatoes which I cut in half. The herbs and seasonings were just fine. Just watch how big a sprig of rosemary you use, and if the bay leaves are small, throw in an extra.

Wrapped Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
These are great! I made a few just as the recipe said, then I sprinkled a little dill on others. Both were fantastic but the dill ones were even better.

Mom's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
I gave it five stars because it's a real good version, but I did take the advice of others and used 2 cups of cheese and a tad more milk. I left off the bread crumbs. they can't add anything to it. Maybe if you want the crunch, use crushed Ritz crackers. I added a teaspoon of dry mustard. You don't taste the mustard. It just picks up the flavor of the cheddar. I took the advice of the "expert" and lowered the baking temp. to 350 for a more even bake. It browned the top and bottom evenly, yum.

Easy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
I've been using this exact recipe for years. I love it. Only I noticed by reading some of the reviews that some people have trouble witht the sour cream breaking/seperating. You should take the pan off the heat before adding in the sour cream. Don't let it boil after adding it. One cup of sour cream at room temp. won't cool the dish down much at all. I take the sour cream out when I start dicing the onions and mushrooms.

Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
Excellent! The only change I made the first time I made it was to put the garlic in later. I don't like to cook the garlic too much. The second time I made it, I wanted a cream sauce so I added a little heavy cream at the end with a little corn starch to thicken the sauce. It was great.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies II

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
This is almost exactly my mother's recipe from back in the 50s. The only difference is a teaspoon of vanilla extract and she couldn't afford evaporated milk so she just used whole milk. I'm not sure mom's had as much cocoa in it, seems like it was less, 2 tblsps. I think I like the additional cocoa better. Thanks for the recipe.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
I made these again. Still used all butter but used 2 cups of flour, 2 tsps. baking soda, kicked up the spices, 2 tsps. cinnamon, 1 tsp. cloves, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg. They didn't spread out so bad and my 95 year old father volunteered his opinion. "Hey, these are good." He never does that! Oh, and 9-10 minutes was long enough in the oven.

Simple Cucumber and Radish Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
I totally disagree with the previous reviewer. I cut the recipe in half, but followed it exactly. It was very refreshing and an excellent to a rich and spicy chicken curry. This would go well with everything. If you're afraid it may be too acidic, just put the vinegar in last, a little at a time. I thought it was fine.

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2013
Great, but I add frozen mixed vegetables to make it a one-pot meal. Some chopped red bell pepper is a nice addition to.

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
Wowzers! I've never made zucchini bread before so I didn't know exactly how. This was the first recipe I tried and it was great. I read all the reviews and so I added 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. I cut the oil in half and used a heavy half a cup of crush PINAPPLE. I do this with my carrot cakes to. I also thought I'd like it a bit lighter so I used a teaspoon of baking powder instead of the quarter tsp. I only have one large loaf pan so I made muffins out of the rest of the batter like someone else did. They were fantastic. I may just make muffins. The crusty tops are the best parts.

Southern Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
I didn't have fresh beans, red onion, or white balsamic vinegar. I used frozen Italian beans, yellow onion and red balsamic vinegar. I also used real bacon bits for time savings. This was great! Loaded with flavor and even the left overs were delicious. I diced the potatoes in a half inch dice but even so, next time I'll nuke them a bit so the green beans aren't over done. I like them a little firmer. Oh and I didn't have chicken brothe either. I used a bit of chicken base and water. Us po folks gotta get creative.
